Question about Acer Aspire RC500 PC Desktop
The inbuilt network adaptor shows a green light when a network cable is plugged into it, BUT the 'Network Connections' window does not show a 'Local Area Connection' nor does the adaptor show up under 'Device Manager' (I thought it would and just need to be 'enabled'). Any suggestions ?
The LAN card had been disabled in BIOS. Once 'enabled' it now works fine.
Thanks for your assistance.

Technically you should provide 'IP Address" to your network card. Generally IP address is provided by the ISP (Internet Service Provider) provider you are using.
Once you get the ip address you can configure it by right clicking on the my network>properties>TCP/IP setting.
This will work.
